  1. Set calendar for appointment

    Please give us the option to change the calendar an appointment is stored and also select the calendar where an appointment is added when an invitation is accepted.

    I use different calendars, some of them are shared, some not. When I receive a meeting invitation it is always added to my main calendar. And since the new beta version it is not even possible to change the calendar of a self created appointment.

  2. Allow bi-weekly scheduling

    Why did you remove the capability to use bi-weekly as schedule? I think you use to allow this but with your latest change, we lost it. Please put it back. Other calendars allow this so you should too.

  4. FYI Meeting Attendees

    Here's a feature I've always wanted. I'd like to be able to create a meeting or be added to a meeting, but I'd like it to not be shown as busy on my schedule. Sometimes, I'd like to let my boss or wife know about meetings and appointments which they will not attend. Sometimes, I arrange appointments and meetings for others which I will not attend. It's great to have it on my calendar so I know that my wife is at the doctor right now or let her know that I'm driving the kids to lacrosse, but I don't…

  5. Want YEAR VIEW calendar

    Please give me an YEAR VIEW calendar. I usually don't use the day-view calendar. I use only MONTH VIEW and YEAR VIEW. PLEASE MAKE YEAR-VIEW CALENDAR AS DEFAULT CALENDAR FOR ME.

    I use calendar mostly for finding which day (Sun/mon etc) of Which week (first or secon week etc) falls on which date. This helps me in pre-planning. I don't use automated reminders, rather I need pre-plan the multiple tasks based on available working days and holidays.

    So please give me year view calendar.

    Also I use calendar to COMPARE dates and days in different month and years (such as…

  9. Show the red line for current time on today only.

    Show the current time on today only. The red line that spans the whole week at the current time across days causes confusion and errors.

  10. Reminder notification for shared calendar

    I share my work calendar with my @outlook.com profile. There is no reminder for the events in the shared calendar. I have to manually open up the shared calendar in the mobile web and add reminder notifications. Which is very annoying. Moreover, every now and then the reminders of the shared calendar gets removed.

    I would suggest a setting to enable default reminders for shared calendars.

  11. Option to change work hours for irregular work schedule

    There should be an option to set working hours for irregular work schedules, i.e. work start time is afternoon/evening and work end time is the next morning. Currently, if you setup an irregular work schedule, you get an error that "the end date you entered occurs before the start date".

  15. Outlook Calendar RESTful API Create Event With Attendee Response Status as Accepted and Outlook Still Sends Invitation Email to Guests

    I'm a developer and my application handles event invitations and rsvp's and adds the events to all of the attendees calendars. When I POST the event to Outlook's RESTful Calendar API with all Attendees response status as accepted/declined, Outlook still sends an invite to guests to accept/rsvp. The organizer of the event's calendar shows that all have accepted, but the event on the guests' calendar doesn't show that anyone has accepted and are prompted to RSVP.

    Is there a better way to get around having invitations sent or accepting invites on behalf of attendees without invite emails being sent out?

  16. Flexible time entry in calendar appointment details window

    The new calendar is nice but typing in times is restrictive -- I have to type "12:45 PM", and nothing else is recognized. Instead, recognize these:
    2p = 2 PM
    1245 = 12:45 PM (take your best guess if the hour is ambiguous AM/PM)
    13 = 1 PM
    6am = 6:00 AM
    0730 = 7:30 AM
    15:00 = 3:00 PM
    7.45 = 7:45 AM
    Also, if I enter a time incorrectly and press Enter, the time entry box gets reset to its previous value. I think I've entered a new time but the appointment stays at the same time. Offer…

  17. Enable calendar personalisation

    Please make the default personal calendar re-namable (eg user's name); when multiple calendars are created, this is confusing and a source for errors. Thanks

  18. recovering accidentally deleted calendar items

    A calendar item is easily accidentally removed. Can you make a folder with deleted items so we can put them back if needed. A right mouse click could do the job.
    Same time, changed appointments are stored in the same folder in their original settings so we can recover them too. Specially when using apples calendar the time of an appointment is so easily changed.

  19. Calendar

    Improve calendar section of Outlook:
    • Combine tasks and calendar into one section/ program (like Merge Calendar)
    • View tasks in monthly calendar view as well (like in Google Calendar), possibility to tick them right out of the calendar
    • Option to add time to tasks -> they appear in that certain time in calendar
    • Add sub-tasks and/ or ticking-boxes to tasks
    • Show pictures directly in note section
    • Possibility to view all appointments in list but in chronological order (currently all repeating elements are listed once but not every date they take place)
    • Option to just…
